for a second, wheng we get through the debt ceiling debate, is there something that feels like a pro-growth agenda? are we going to have the issues under control? is it enough to get businesses confident in the future? and i think when we get through this, we'll be left with a 2% economy, 4% earnings growth, and it's going to be okay, but uninspiring. >> 4%, 5% earnings growth, plus 2% for dividends, that's not a bad year for the s&p. it'll get you to 1,550? >> we are in a mid single digit equities environment. it's not horrible as long as you're not expecting something that's, you know, that's 10%. >> look at some of these releases. i'm very impressed with the isms for services. very impressed with capital goods, factory order spending, factories isms, even the employment report showed good hours worked in income. are we underestimating the economy? forget washington, put that aside. >> are you underestimating the economy? it'll be 3% instead of 2%? >> it could be. let's put it this way. if you look, for example, at the cbo budget numbers, they are looking for this thing to get to 3

or is this something else that must be addressed before you get to the debt ceiling extension question? >> the debt ceiling is likely to come first. the funny thing is at this point to some extent there aren't any external deadlines they absolutely have to meet. these are all created by washington. historically the debt ceiling was not an occasion for a big policy change. it became one in 2011, the republicans successfully made that happen. but they could easily extend the debt kreiling the way washington has in the past. in some ways the bigger thing is the sequester. it was supposed to be january 1, they pushed it back to march 1. substantial cuts. not overwhelming but substan tomorrow domestic programs and the military. most people don't want them take effect and the question is can they come up with something else that would bring down the deficit instead of across-the-board sequester cuts scheduled for march 1. >> rose: i watched over the weekend the talk shows and mitch mcconnell, the leader of the republicans in the senate said the tax question is off the table. we've dwelt that so we only w

removed some of these up coming deadlines, like the debt ceiling. and they didn't get one of those bigger deals. instead they got something in which obama won a pretty significant tactical victory. almost all the policies are vastly more to his liking than the republicans. but he didn't get any of these other deadlines taken off the table and that's a big risk for him because now the republicans have the potential of using the debt ceiling and possibly the sequester, these automatic budget cuts that will start taking effect in march, to really force big spending cuts and if obama doesn't agree potentially it will cause him substantial economic damage. >> rose: austan, i've talked to people who are wonderful negotiators and they always say to me "you've got to give the other guy something, it's never, never i win-you lose." did the president make a mistake by not at least giving republicans some spending cuts that they would have been able to take home? >> i don't know if i totally agree with that in this circumstance in that they -- the democrats moved on what level the higher tax rates w

are considering doing as part of these upcoming negotiations on the debt ceiling is requiring the senate to pass a budget, something that as you point out they haven't done for three years in order to have any consideration of a debt ceiling hike. i mean one would think that you won't have to put those kind of strict you ares on the senate in order to get it to do its job. it is the case that senate democrats in particular have sought to avoid any kind of restraint on spending, including the restraints that are incumbent on the body itself by just passing a budget. jon: when president obama, you know, directs his criticism at congress it always seems to be directed at the house of representatives and speaker john boehner, as if the democrats on capitol hill have nothing to do with the logjam. >> yeah, i think that's right. i think that is one of the key points in this whole broad discussion of government spending. people forget that president obama came to office, i mean there was a debate in august of 2008, a presidential debate in which president obama vowed to fix entitlement spending in his

. if you don't raise the debt ceiling right away, it's not defaulting on their loans. the treasury secretary can cut other spending. it is basically a government shutdown. republicans have lost that in the past. but i think unless there is something that the president has to lose, you don't have any leverage in the spending cuts. gerri: you know, the far left and far right will think that that -- well, the different analyses of wh happened. they think will lives lost in the last debate what do you make of that? the republicans wee in a much weaker bargainingposition. what speaker boehner was doing anything that taxes went up midnight on december 31. he actually got a tax cut compared where would've been. everybody else was going to get higher income taxes and they didn't. in this case from the esident keeps more than what speaker boehner caved. the. gerri: you make a good point. i wanted to respond one more thing, which i found interesting. steve moore of "the wall street journal" said we had heard that i'm not going to negotiate with the president anymore and now we find out that

something here. let's talk about the debt ceiling fight. >> he president will not play that game over the debt limit, this is holding the american country hostage. it costs billions of dollars last time that we don't have. so if they want to fight over shutting down the government that's up to them. but the debt limit just can't be something that we periodically bring the country to the brink over. >> stephanie: we were talking about some of the republicans literally waxing nostalgic. and not only was it a disaster for them politically, we were saying this isn't 1995 anymore. we are in a weak recovery, are we not? >> that ex-exactly right. and it's astounding to hear them talk about the fondness. it is do not what they should be talking about now. they should be talking about finding a way to work together to solve our economic challenges. but they seemed to have learned the wrong lesson from the fiscal cliff that they need to try to make up for double in the next one. but that will be disastrous if they do. >> stephanie: we have heard nancy pelosi and harry reid
